Week of October 16, 2017

I am so excited for our field trip this week. This is a rain or shine field trip. Please make sure the student dresses for the weather. This is an outside field trip so everyone should have a jacket.

Bring a disposable bag lunch in a plastic grocery bag. They will be carrying their lunch with them.
